Many kids dream about standing beside their favorite Boston Red Sox players and watching batting practice and pitching sessions up close. Thanks to the team’s new interactive programming initiative Calling All Kids, the next generation of fans can now experience the thrill of being on the field by simply strapping on a virtual reality headset.
Kids who come to watch a game at Fenway Park will be able to test out the technology at Wally’s Clubhouse, located in the Kids Concourse behind right field. But you don’t need a ticket to feel like you’re part of the action. A new Red Sox Mobile Experience will be visiting communities all over New England during the upcoming 2016 baseball season. The 15-foot truck is equipped with panels that move to remake the Green Monster wall and will carry a batting cage, a virtual reality dugout and pitching stations. From spring training to game day preparations, young fans will have the chance to experience behind-the-scenes moments. Videos will also be available to fans online.
